Do you want to experience the thrill of actually flying a helicopter? Trial Introductory Flights are ideal as gifts or purely as an introduction to the world of helicopters.

Townsville Helicopters offers Trial Introductory Flights (TIFs) to the general public. The program consists of a short classroom tutorial on the effects of controls of a helicopter, followed by a flight in a helicopter where you actually fly. The helicopter is fitted with dual controls and a qualified instructor will be there to guide you through the lesson. You will experience hovering, controlled forward flight and many other manoeuvres the helicopter is capable of, whilst enjoying the views of Townsville.

Please note: Your friends and family are welcome to take photos, but we are not able to take passengers when we are instructing in the helicopter
